The House Repeals ObamaCare.

Good on them. Keep it up, I say.

The vote went down 245-189, with three Dems voting to repeal and one no vote being that of Rep. Giffords, obviously still recovering from her injuries.

Now the Senate gets to prove just how disconnected from the American people they really are and sign their own death warrants... Or they can pass repeal and pass the buck to Obama who will have to veto and sign his own death warrant.

It's going to be so much fun watching the sweating and fallout!

Yesterday's House vote was purely symbol, of course.

Even so, the Dems must see the way the wind is blowing now. Well, the Dems who are capable of seeing the [cough] change in the air.

I note that our local news stations here in the D.C. area avoided mentioning the numbers of this vote. Heh.

Instead of hearing much about the vote, our local news shows are blabbing about the panda bears and Obama's progress with an agreement with China.

I think this was more than symbolic.

There are 21 Democrats up for re-election in the Senate in 2012, many of them can already be called vulnerable.

Make them vote against it and explain their vote next year.

I think the House should do this again next May or so.

Reid has no intention of bringing the House bill to the floor of the Senate. What we are seeing is play-acting. Recall that Reid was just reelected to a six year term; he knows most Americans have no long-term memory. His refusal will allow senators up for reelection in 2012 to argue this wasn't their fault. It was Reid's fault.

But it does prove Democrats couldn't care less about the will of the people.

This was political Kabuki theater. Even if the Senate were to vote for repeal, BO has veto power and it will remain law.

The country needs to vote out the senators who supported this abomination.

At the very least, this action starts drawing lines in the sand so that the American people have to start deciding what they want from government and in their society. Too many of my countrymen want nanny-state care or don't understand the issues or they are trying to have their cake and eat it too. At least enough of them that have kept the most liberal of Democrats and RINOs in power.

Alligator: Too many Americans don't understand the ramifications of their votes. Perhaps this lack of knowledge stems from the poor educations they receive or from a lack of curiousity. I don't know. It's ironic that in this age of information, information is so hard to find.

Alligator said...

Cube, I know what you mean. I've talked with plenty of people who have openly said they make up their mind how they vote when they enter the polling place. That is a little too late to make any kind of INFORMED vote. Of course, when elections are close anyway, people like that can determine the outcome. And they tend to go with name recognition - its all they know when they walk in the polling place.

The sound byte voter is by definition lazy. I think that this administration is has so blatantly disregarded the Constitution and the will of the People that the Tea Party is awakening some people to inform themselves.

Either way, the House vote sets the stage for the Dems to twist, and I like that.

BATMAN said...

Rush pointed out that the repeal vote got more votes than when Obamacare was actually passed. Ironic?

Brooke said...

I think not.

Yet the underlying legislation remains intact--the civil rights act of 1964 -- the legislation responsible for Government entitlement... to say the least.
